Supermechanical is solar-powered

Since our last update we’ve really gotten into a productive groove here in Austin. Maybe it’s the sunshine, maybe it’s the much cheaper beer — whatever it is, it’s really been working. Status report on all fronts at our blog:

      Where is our unit???

      Zeb, production Twines will be aqua. The beta units were made before our colorant was ready.
      Thanks, Andrew - it's not a perfect process, but we're trying. A hardware supply chain really adds a lot of variables, and there's always something new to learn, and share with you guys.

      Glad you are working on "getting it right" rather than trying to get it out the door.

      I am getting more and more excited about these things turning up. :)

      I have a question, will the final production units be white, or will they be the aqua-marine color shown in the original picture?

      Always glad for the updates but I really want my twine.

      great update, but I rather like to see a realistic update than 'August'. Each update since March shows yet another reason why shipment is delayed for another month.

      So what is really realistic as ship date ....

      Thanks for the update, guys! It's looking great!
